I also finally painted my gold ceiling fan after 8 years of living in this house. It was the only original light fixture left and I had avoided painting it because I thought it would be a pain. It was actually really easy and I wish I would have done it sooner. I just used a can of dark brown flat spray paint. I didn't sand or prime first since it will be on the ceiling and no one will touch it. While I had the spray paint, I painted my gold clock and a couple of picture frames to match.
Total cost was $5 for the spray paint!
I just removed the blades from the fan and sprayed away. Those blades really needed to be removed and dusted and washed off anyway (They must have had 10+ years of filth on them).
Now link up to my 4th Penny Pinching Party and share what you are doing to save money!
I will have McKlinky up until Monday and will feature some of my favorites next week.
Here are my only rules:
• Add the permalink to the specific blog post, not your general blog address.
• Link back to the party from your post so that everyone can join in the fun!
• If you have my Penny Pinching Party button on your blog, I may feature you when I highlight my favorite Penny Pinching ideas.
I am also linking up to Reinvented's Trash to Treasure Tuesday, the Home Sanctuary blog party: Company Girl Coffee 10.23, The Boardwalk "Bragfest", and Metamorphosis Monday.
